See six spooky tales for the price of one at 'Realms of the Untold' at the Venue



The latest show from Orlando actor-writer-dynamo Corey Volence is an anthology of six short, spooky tales. (Heads up! It’s the first day of October and everyone is going to try to scare you for the next 31 days.) Realms of the Untold is not in the “gorefest” or “startle-jump” camps, though; it’s written in the classically creepy “made-you-think” style of old sci-fi TV shows like The Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits. In our review of Volence’s 2013 musical Key of E, we said, “If you’ve ever thought ‘What the world needs now is a nice solid plague,’ this sharp-tongued show is for you,” so clearly Volence is comfortable with the dark stuff. If you are too, consider a night of live theater that will leave you deeply unsettled, if not scared out of your wits.

Opens 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 1, through Oct. 10 | The Venue, 511 Virginia Drive | | $15
